    Hiyas!

    Well, to start off, I guess I have this dislike toward M4s, but I can't deny their ease of customization and the numerous upgrades you can get for them.

    I'm looking for something M4 like, but at the same time, not an M4, nor M16, nor anything that starts with M really. I tried an L85, probably as far as I can get away from an M4, but I don't like the way bullpups feel.

    So far, I was thinking about an ICS SG551, V3 gearbox and a lotta rails make it easy to customize. What do you think? Or have any other suggestions?

    What's your price range? I bought a A&K Masada over a M4, and it's great. I would recommend Scar H's/L's or the Magpul/G&P/A&K Masada's over M4's any day.

    300 would be nice, anything more then that and I'd probably just get the 551

    Get the Sig. You like it, its in your price range, and it will be more durable internally than the A&K Masada. Only negative is the mags but still I would get the Sig.

    The Masada seems neat, but it kinda has a lack of rails, and I don't want to pay extra for them.

    I'll probably do that, could you elaborate on "more durable internally than the A&K Masada"?

    HK416/417 now. Buy it. Make sure you buy the one with all the gearbox problems fixed.

    One of my friends has an HK416, don't like it. It feels and operates the same way as an M4.

    Well, as an H&K fanboy, I can't let that comment slide without a pointless rant.:p

    My friend has a ICS SIG551, and I really like the feel. The A&K Masada feels like an M4, but not.....(BTW on the A&K, I'm pretty sure you can use the rails for the PTS Moe handgaurd and drill them in.)

    He already bought the 551. So no need to keep telling him what gun to buy if he already bought the one he wants.

    Yea I was looking at the CXP, I guess I didn't get it because it's not an actual gun and it didn't have much appeal to me.

    While it's true that I already bought the 551, it's still interesting for me to see what others like that's not an M4.

    I personally like King Arms, yes G&P have better externals and yes VFC has better internals but King Arms is kind of that in between group, has good internals and externals.
